Hey, Richmond! Hazy Folk IPA, our collaboration with the 15th Annual Richmond Folk Festival, is now available at select retailers and restaurants throughout the River City! ⁠ ⁠ This New England-style IPA greets you with aromas of ripe peaches, grapefruit and tangerines on the nose. Notes of tropical fruit and slightly citrusy pine take center stage with your first sip. The addition of oats and wheat to a light and crisp pilsen malt base yields a velvety mouthfeel. ⁠ ⁠ And don't miss this year's @rvafolkfest October 11-13 when Hazy Folk will be on tap all weekend! ⁠ ⁠ #collaborationbrew #hazyipa #neipa #folkfestival #rva #october #localbeer #localmusic #richmondva #rivercity #rvafolkfest⁠ ⁠

Prost! Oktoberfest at Hardywood West Creek Today!

Shaking the cobwebs off the blog just a today.

Hardywood is hosting their first ever Oktoberfest at their West Creek location today Saturday October 5th starting at 1pm.  And judging from this video it looks like they are going all out. I mean look at that tent and that shirt!

I joked with Brian about cooking bratwursts at the festival but as it turns out my schedule will have me arriving late to the festivities. There would have been VIPA mustard.

So maybe don’t be like me and instead get there early.  The schedule above is jam packed with fun. Maybe save me a bit of the oak barrel beers?

So go out and hoist these steins.

For a safe way home, use the code HARDYWOODFEST19 for 50% off a Lyft ride. Maybe next year Hardywood will offer this code for to and from the festival.

Check out the Facebook event for more details and updates.
